June, July and August are the best months to sample mangoes. They are much cheaper this year and with many exotic fruits more accessible in the Summer months, this is the best time to sample fruits from around the world.
I tend to associate game with the autumn and winter months but a haunch of venison, cooked pink, is delicious at any time of the year and cherries are in season now. You don't have to pickle the cherries - try adding the fresh, stoned fruit to the pan instead, or make a sauce using redcurrant jelly
Going vegan or switching to a more plant based diet is so popular right now. In fact a host of celebrities including Beyonce, Stella McCartney and Ellie Goulding have said goodbye to meat and dairy. But if you are looking to ditch the meat make sure your diet is healthy.
New research reveals that in the first week of the summer break £12 million worth of food will be thrown in the bin by UK families as they head off on holiday. More than half of people surveyed admitted to throwing away perfectly edible food before they went on holiday.

Served atop loaded bowls starring delicious, crispy tofu seasoned with middle-eastern flavours from ras-el-hanout and herby green harissa, this will be sure to take you to food heaven. It's of course perfect for falafels, for salads, any others bowls or rice dishes and for dipping too.
Just as good for breakfast as for dessert. Dessert for breakfast anyone? Top with ice cream or whipped coconut cream and sugar dusted berries for a summertime treat. Or get indulgent with chocolate shavings and warm salted caramel sauce on top of your ice cream!
If you haven't come across gochujang before, I urge you to get your sticky mitts on a tub of this fabulous Korean chilli paste.

'Ooh yum' I hear you mutter, but trust me, it tastes amazing.
The word 'science' can ofter be prefixed by the word 'pseudo' when it comes to fitness advice dished-out by so-called specialists, and often causes the real experts to frown and scratch their chins in bemusement.
